This morning was a rainy morning and it rained off and on most of the day. We were up early and got busy packing everything up for the move. Yes, Fred was just moving from the parking lot into the service bay but it’s basically the same pack up as when we plan a long driving day or days. Everything off the countertops, slides in, jacks up, all cabinets and drawers secured, bedroom doors latched open and the list goes on. Of course, first we took time for a wonderful Sunny’s Donuts cinnamon roll. Now that’s a great way to start the day.
Anne went on in to class at 8:00 while Max waited for our service technician to come do the walk around for the rig and discuss what was to be done today. There were several others getting service today so we really just reviewed yesterdays’ information until everyone could join us. We have learned a few important items over the past few days. Since some of our readers may have a Freightliner, you might like to know that Cummins endorsed and recommended Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost and Diesel Fuel Supplement+Cetane Boost as a fuel supplement. Anyone needing information on this, drop us an email. We also learned a good deal about our air brake system and exhaust brake which improved our understanding of our coach operations. We also learned some maintenance items that will be added to our pre-trip check list. We definitely feel the classes were time and money well spent and would recommend Camp Freightliner to any owner. We got a good report on Fred as expected and all the preventative maintenance and fluid changes were performed.
So not much most people would be interested in today. However, Google did show us what we were doing this time last year. We were here in Gaffney getting service, but no class, so we went biking on the Swamp Rabbit Trail with our nephew Phillip and his wife Lauren and daughter Dorothy. That was a really fun day. No biking this year but maybe next. We made our appointment to return for our annual maintenance next year and won’t have classes then.
